Guangzhou TV & Sightseeing Tower, Guangzhou, China

2 of 28

Scheduled to open to the public in November, this astonishingly
skinny, shockingly tall (2,001 feet) tower has two primary functions: to
support a TV antenna and to show tourists a good time. Attractions include a
guided open-air climb up 600 feet along a winding staircase through a jungle of
structural steel, a tiered sundeck at the very top where weary climbers can
lounge on bleachers, and yes, the World’s Highest Ferris Wheel.

Observe This: Supposedly the two revolving restaurants won’t
be serving soup because the tower’s swaying motion will turn attempts to eat it
into a Charlie Chaplin routine. —Karrie Jacobs
